Here’s That New Car Bomb Track with Guest Vocals by Suffocation’s Frank Mullen


Car Bomb - Meta

Car Bomb’s music is hard to write to, because their songs don’t really follow a set or consistent rhythm (typing to Meshuggah is similarly vexing). When you have a steady 4/4 track with a consistent vocal pattern, you can type away without a care in the world. But Car Bomb make it difficult. If there was ever music that causes temporary dyslexia, it would be theirs.

In that way, the new Car Bomb track, “Sets,” is truly brutal. Sure, it helps that Suffocation’s Frank Mullen provided guest vocals on the track which are about as gruff and hostile as they come. But it’s more the fact that “Sets” doesn’t even try to be approachable. The tempo shifts suddenly for no apparent reason, making it feel as though a giant has just tilted the entire room around you, or that your inner ear has been destroyed (given Mullen’s presence, perhaps it was PIERCED FROM WITHIN, aheh, aheheh).

So, apologies in advance for any typos or weird backwards-ass grammar in this post. Blame it on Car Bomb. If it happens during a post about Motörhead, I’ll take the heat for that.

Anyway, listen to “Sets” below. Car Bomb’s new album, Meta, produced by Joe Duplantier of Gojira, drops October 28th via Solid Grey; pre-order it here. The band is also about to go on tour with The Dillinger Escape Plan, so make sure to get dizzy at one of the dates here.
